We all know that natural disasters happen and we want to be helpful and supportive when it does. We also know that there are things we can do to prepare for disasters before they happen. The United Church of Christ has a network of Conference Disaster Coordinators and Teams across the denomination. For the Southeast Conference, such individuals become the “ears, eyes, and hands” to help us respond to situations within the Conference.
We are looking for individuals located in various parts of the Conference to serve on a Disaster Team: checking in with churches following disasters. We are also looking for a Conference Disaster Coordinator who will coordinate the Team, learn about and stay connected to the UCC Disaster Ministries, and consider ways of working ecumenically within our geographical area. These are volunteer positions that can have a significant impact on our Conference’s ability to respond to our churches when disaster hits.
If you are interested or want more information, contact Char Burch, Transitional Conference Minister, through email: [email protected] or 404-615-2492.
